I gotta tell you, we’re not laughing anymore. It wasn’t funny the first time, but it did kind of make us scratch our ears.
“Hot enough to fry a cat on the sidewalk.”
Yeah, its hot. Not THAT hot! And we’re not allowed outside anyway, so we don’t know why every third human who walks through the door tells us that! Aaarrrggg! One little record-breaking heat wave and our humans go all goofy.
We’ve been learning about weather in our Private Pilot Ground School Class. One of our human friends, Terrible (don’t ask me, I didn’t name him), teaches the weather chapter of our class. We learned that even airplanes don’t like these temperatures. When it is hot the air is less dense and doesn’t allow an aircraft to generate enough “lift.” M and I totally get that… when it is hot it is hard to generate enough lift to drag our tails off the chair.
Since it’s been so nasty out we decided we should make something nice for our class mates, but we didn’t want to make anything that took a lot of effort. And we certainly didn’t want to make anything that required turning on the oven, so cookies were out…..
So we checked out our Pinterest board of ‘Crafty Ideas‘ and found these super cute notebooks that we’d pinned a while back. We are always writing notes in class (since the Board turned us down for our own iPads) and we thought these would be fun to share!
Since it’s ‘back to school’ time the girl was able to find these little bitty note books… perfect sized for us and perfect for the humans to tuck into their pockets!
We liked THIS idea, but pretty soon we had strips of paper all over the office (it was kind of distracting…. M kept running off and chasing them!) and the girl was mad that we’d dumped the Mod Podge in one of her desk drawers…. oops!
So we decided to scale it back a bit….
You will need:
- Mod Podge (or you could use glue)
- Paint Brush
- Sectional Chart (or other pretty paper, but really… charts are awfully pretty)
- Paper Cutter
We cut our so that it fit exactaly at the top and bottom edges, but overlapped into the front and back covers…. like a book jacket. ‘Paint’ the front cover with the ModPodge. Go slow with the ModPodge.. make sure you have everything lined up before you glue down the back cover.
Glue down the front and back inside flaps last.
Meow-out to our Instructor Terrible! I read the chapter…. M didn’t… she took a nap! I’m ready for the next class, ask me anything!
